Head offshore with Captain Mike Mcgahan aboard his luxurious 28' Contender for an awesome day exploring the DEEEP water!...Read More
While most offshore charters are restricted to staying within state water off the emerald coast (~9mi offshore), Captain Mike is Federally Permitted to run trips past state waters, meaning he can run 3/4 and Full day trips up 30 miles offshore! At these depths the fish increase in both size and variety!
After you get settled in, and Captain Mike cranks up the engines, you will motor out anywhere from 10-30 miles offshore depending on the duration of your trip. IE: don't expect to run 30 miles offshore on a 6-hour trip. Once you're out there, Captain Mike will set you up for some trolling, deep-sea dropping, and fish catching! For these trips, you can expect to hook into the likes of Wahoo, King Mackerel, Snapper, Sharks, Jack Crevalle, Mahi Mahi, Bonita, Amberjack, Cobia, and Sailfish just to name a few, and there are plenty more species the Gulf can offer up! Captain Mike is even known to hook into a Tuna every once in a while trolling at these depths, but they are never a target for his trips.
While onboard, you are welcome to get as involved as you would like with your adventure as well, whether you'd rather lounge until the reel starts screaming or if you want your hand on the rod the whole time, Captain Mike can make it happen! Beyond superior service, Captain Mike also provides the best rods, reels, tackle, bait, and fishing licenses you could possibly need for a successful day out on the water. Thus, all you need to bring are your favorite lunch, snack, and drink, your sun protection, maybe a towel, and your camera! Otherwise, Captain Mike will take care of the rest to make the most of your offshore adventure!

Weather conditions were terrible but captain Mike done everything possible to make a trip out of it and keep us safe
The day started off great with everyone arriving on time. We had the morning trip and Capt. Mike was already at the doc when we arrived. The boat was clean, poles rigged and bait on the boat ready to fish. Capt. Mike had a great attitude to start the day ...Read More and was ready to fish. There where 5 of us on the this trip. Capt. Mike went to the first spot, 5 of us casted and 4 of us brought fish up on the first cast. Capt. Mike was very attentive and kept up with us, keeping us baited and fixing broken lines. We moved to the second spot and the fishing was even better. Capt. Mike put us on fish all day long. When we returned to the doc Capt. Mike cleaned our catch and bagged it up. This was our first ocean fishing trip and thanks to Capt. Mike’s great attitude and professionalism we will definitely do it again.
